Residual Functional Capacity – Part 2

On Behalf of Christian Ayers
  |     |  

A comprehensive residual functional capacity involves both exertional and non-exertional factors. Exertional capacity has to do with the seven strength demands: Sitting, standing, walking, lifting, carrying, pushing, and pulling, all of which must be evaluated. Non-exertional factors include: Understand, carry out and remember instructions, use judgement in making work-related decision, respond appropriately to supervision, co-workers and work situations, and deal with the changes in routine work settings.
