    Just to expand a bit on what .SH said - - - - - - - - with the full medical exam, you will be tested for such things as range of motion of certain body parts, especially those involved in the "disability" claim. You will be examined for strength, stamina, agility, etc. This is going to take awhile, but remember not to push yourself beyond actual abilities. Don't hold back if you're able to do something, either.

    Ok, I understand. So is this examination is more like an FCE?

    That would be a close comparison.
