Physical Demands Analysis (PDA)
A PDA program changes the focus from maximum medical improvement 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!
