The Metriks Functional Lift Platform is used for Functional Capacity Evaluations. It has two height adjustable shelves for dynamic lifting. Each shelf has built in holes for Non-Material Handling testing of reaching, handling, fine dexterity, crouching, kneeling and bending. The Push Pull attachment allows for Isometric Push testing.
All clients referred for a Functional Capacity Evaluation, and who need their strength capacities (lifting, carrying, and pushing/pulling) determined, will undergo a series of materials handling testing on a gradual basis in accordance with the individual’s needs and/or abilities per medical diagnosis. All clients will be attached to a pulse rate/heart monitor during testing.
To establish and/or determine an individual’s present and safe strength capacities as defined by the Department of Labor / Dictionary Of Occupational Titles (DOT) Titles – Classification of Strength, with regards to lifting, carrying, pushing and pulling (see figure: 1); relative to a specific job or for the purposes of job placement within the individual’s demonstrated abilities.
The easy set-up allows for portable functional capacity evaluations.
