What is an impairment evaluation

An impairment evaluation is a medical evaluation. Its purpose is to define, describe, and measure the differences in a particular person compared with either the average person (e.g. an IQ of 86 compared with the normal expected average of 100) or that person's prior capability (e.g. a preinjury IQ measured at 134 compared with the current level of 100). Such differences may take the form of anatomic deviations (e.g. amputations), physical abnormalities (e.g. decreased motion of a joint, decreased strength surrounding that joint, or abnormal neurologic input), physiologic abnormalities (e.g. diminished ability to breathe, electrical conduction disturbances in the heart), or psychological (e.g. diminished ability to think, reason, or remember).
