About us
Occupational Therapist Practice in Pretoria

FunctionWise, formerly Takkie Pistorius Occupational Therapists, is a dedicated practice where quality, care and efficiency are our core values in order to ensure comprehensive client assessments and treatment, timeous service delivery and client specific recommendations and conclusions.


The practice was established in 2000 mainly focussing on adult rehabilitation, with a special interest in upper limb injuries and conditions. The rehabilitation services were expanded to include work conditioning as part of the return to work process. We have experience in work conditioning and work hardening of clients with orthopaedic, neurological and medical conditions.

Since 2010 the practice has grown and expanded into the fields of functional capacity evaluations (FCE), pre-work screens (PWS), fitness to work assessments (FTW), vocational rehabilitation with the focus on return to work programmes (RTW) and case management of the RTW program.


Our entire team is WorkWell trained and two of our therapists are trained on the PFCE (Psychiatry Functional Capacity Evaluator). The team is experienced in utilising cognitive, psychological and physical standardised tests and questionnaires. The use of standardised tests, a thorough interview and integration of collateral information leads to scientifically based conclusions and recommendations in context of the client’s job requirements.

In 2015 we started with Fitness to Drive (FTD) assessments as some of our clients work as drivers and/or need to retain their independence in terms of transportation. We can now offer our clients the full spectrum of services, assessing both their ability to work and continue driving.
