Testing one's limits: This is a technical way of saying that the ot wants to see exactly how one performs a particular "activity"; whether it be holding a fork, manipulating an item, etc.

Activity: The term “activity analysis” is used in occupational therapy to describe an evaluation of a patient who is getting ready to start therapy, in which case the purpose is to identify activities performed by an individual for the purpose of directing therapy more effectively. In this type of analysis, the occupational therapist looks at activities the patient engages in or wants to resume.
