How Does the FCI Work?
The Functional Capacity Index was created based on research findings and extensive clinical studies. These studies analyzed various predictors and factors related to patients' functional outcomes, in the context of health conditions such as:
- Heart disease
By analyzing the findings of these studies, researchers developed an index that provides important insights into patients' functional capacity.
By utilizing the FCI, medical professionals can assess the patient's functional capacity, considering factors like:
- Overall physical function
- Muscle strength
This assessment helps medical professionals to tailor effective treatment plans, including exercises to improve the patient's recovery and quality of life.
How Does the FCI Help Prove Functional limitations?
The FCI is a vital tool for personal injury lawyers who are representing clients who have sustained injuries in an accident caused by negligence. Personal injury lawyers rely on the index to prove the functional limitations caused by the injury, which can strengthen an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit. By thoroughly examining the scores an attorney can argue effectively for fair compensation.
How Can the FCI Help Determine Long-term Medical Needs?
The Functional Capacity Index can assist personal injury lawyers in determining the long-term consequences of injuries on their clients' health-related quality of life. By utilizing the FCI findings, attorneys can identify associations between injuries and health outcomes, including mortality and risk of heart failure. With this information, a personal injury lawyer can advocate for fair compensation that will cover immediate medical expenses and the long-term consequences of the accident victim's diminished functional capacity.
