Cairns pre-employment physical assessments which include psychometric testing, are now available at Wellness Embodied. In fact, we’re the only clinic in Far North Queensland to provide Fitworker 360 psychometric testing, as a part of the process. Can be completed online, in person or via Telehealth.


How employees perform in the workplace can be affected by physical, mental and behavioural factors. These can’t be tested at an initial interview. Step in the Wellness Embodied Cairns pre-employment screening and assessments. As well as testing on movement capabilities, range and the physical capacity of your candidate, we incorporate psychometric testing to deliver a comprehensive assessment report.


Our team of experienced Cairns physiotherapists, exercise physiologist and Allied Health professionals are movement experts. We’ve been providing Cairns pre-employment physicals and assessments for years, and are highly adept at functional capacity assessments. We’ve recently extended our capabilities regarding Cairns pre-employment physicals, by incorporating the processes of the Fitworker 360 system.


Fitworker 360 is the only program of its kind to include psychometric testing, which assesses employee resilience, empathy, non-aggression and safe work practices. The assessments can be tailored to the specific needs of your business and the role for which the candidate is applying. It has proven performance for employers (more on this below), including reduced Workcover premiums.


Cairns pre-employment physical assessments conducted at Wellness Embodied, also includes psychometric testing, thanks to the Fitworker 360 program. The psychometric testing is completely standardised and designed to deter dishonesty in answers. It offers consistency and the ability for hiring managers to track their candidates’ progress along the way.

A psychometric assessment and musculoskeletal screening questionnaire can be completed by your candidate online. For those who require a physical assessment, our physiotherapists can complete this in our clinic, in private rooms and rehab gym, at your workplace, or via Telehealth and secure video consult.

We’re also proud to deliver a range of early intervention programs to a number of Cairns and Cooktown organisations, reducing loss of work time from employee injury. We also support businesses with injury management for employees, as and when needed.


Knowing your candidate is capable to perform their role, above and beyond any prior training and experience, is critical. That’s why we incorporate the Fitworker 360 into our Cairns pre-employment screening.

Some of the benefits and outcomes of the Fitworker 360 includes the following.

  • Reduced Workcover Premiums
  • Screening for Risk
  • Enhanced Safety
  • Decreased Staff Turnover of 29%
  • LTIFR reduction of 84%*

They have great physios, who get to know you as a person, not just your illness. They also do nice little personal touches, like sending you a birthday message or checking in via text to see you're ok after a treatment.


I presently visit 3 different staff members and I find what they are helping me with, always improves my situation. They really care for me as a person, and I appreciate that! The admin girls are like friends - laughing and talking with me. I feel like I'm coming to visit family when I walk through the door. I love your business' dedication to community also


I was impressed with the all-round service, not just physio, but also nutrition and exercise and breathing


I love the team and the space at Wellness Embodied and can't thank everyone enough for the amazing work they do
