Sustained Return to Work

Physical Demands Analysis (PDA)

A PDA program changes the focus from maximum medical improve to return to work. This service is the cornerstone of determining causation, medical treatment plans, return to work, and accommodation. A PDA provides a biomechanical description of the essential functions of a job and the physical demands required to perform them.

  • Defines the essential functions in an ADA-compliant fashion
  • Defines the physical abilities necessary to perform the essential functions
  • Matches the physical abilities of employees with job demands
  • Facilitates consistency of treatment and decreases over-utilization

Genex performs more than 230 PDAs each year!
