work-injury-physical-therapy-6Physical Capacity / Work Capacity Evaluations

Physical Capacity Evaluation (PCE) and Work Capacity Evaluation (WCE) are an essential evaluation tool for determining readiness to return to work after injury, performing pre-employment/post-offer screenings, monitoring progress throughout industrial rehabilitation, and performing goal-setting/treatment planning for industrial rehabilitation. Under Oregon Workers’ Compensation, a PCE II is a 2-4 hour test and a WCE is a 4+ hour test.
Rebound uses the Ergo-Science Work Capacity Evaluation System because it provides the most objective, consistent and accurate observation-based testing and offers distinct advantages to intuitive or diagnosis-based decision-making.

  • work-injury-physical-therapy-1The Ergo-Science Work Capacity Evaluation is the only work-capacity assessment that has both reliability and validity research which supports the entire test, as well as each individual test item.
  • Ergo-Science Assessment can be used for whole-body focus, or UE focused testing. Cardiovascular parameters can also be assessed.
  • Up to 36 tasks can be assessed including Endurance, Dynamic Strength, Positional Tolerance, and Mobility parameters.
  • Test result reports can be provided in graph or written format. Rehabilitation, workplace recommendations can also be provided upon request. The PCE / WCE report will be completed and sent to the referring provider within 7 days.
  • All testing is done in a safe, environmentally controlled setting.

To schedule a PCE II or WCE please call Rebound’s Bend North work injury rehab facility at 541-323-5864

Pre-employment Screening

We offer on or off-site pre-employment physical capacity screening and training to help identify and prevent work place injuries. We have a proven track record of substantially lowering work compensation injury claims and their associated costs for the companies we have contracted with. To inquire about these services or to receive references, please contact Katie Gottlieb at 541-323-5864.

Ergonomic Assessment

Ergonomics is the science of fitting work to the person.  With proper work station ergonomics, employee safety, performance and productivity can be improved.  Time loss injuries due to accidents and cumulative trauma can be reduced.  All ergonomic assessments and recommendations are based on sound biomechanical principals.  To inquire about these services or to receive references, please contact Katie Gottlieb at 541-323-5864.


Rebound is the only provider to have a separate, stand alone facility dedicated to work injury rehabilitation and testing. Our facility is staffed and equipped for full physical capacity/ work capacity testing and the ability to create and simulate real job duties in preparation for work return.
