BTE EvalTech: A better tool for assessment

The BTE EvalTech is a new piece of technology that gives companies, recently WSS, a new and comprehensive way to help customers evaluate and manage their workplace assessment program. This new technology advances physical assessment programs by, “providing the most peer-reviewed and legally defensible evals with automated reports untouched by manual data entry,” noted by EvalTech.  

The benefits of using the BTE EvalTech through WSS

BTEEvalTech has a game-like stimulation for employees and applicants, keeping them entertained and amused throughout their experience, making it much more likely for them to accurately finish their assessment. You can replicate any work-like settings right there in the clinic, allowing you and your employees to return to those tasks easier, quicker, and more reliably.

Being able to test so specifically, “from isolated joint testing, to functional testing, to full Functional Capacity Evaluation – you have the ability to establish objective baseline strength and range of motion measures, pinpoint deficiencies, identify asymmetries, and more.”  

How does BTE EvalTech work?

The employer can enter the requirements for the job (e.g., lifting 50 pounds). BTE EvalTech uses isometric evaluation, which means that it assess each individual's isometric strength, then provides a baseline for that employee, which can be measured against the pre-set requirements. There is little to no chance of injury during the test, and the accuracy is far higher than a typical physical assessment. This has dramatically reduced the number of worker's compensation cases for companies that choose to employ the BTE EvalTech.
