Alternate title

Physiotherapy Evidence Database


PEDro (Physiotherapy Evidence Database) is a free database with indexing for over 49,000 trials, reviews, and practice guidelines evaluating physiotherapy interventions. All trials in PEDro are rated for quality using the PEDro scale. These ratings allow users to quickly and easily identify relevant and valid trials to guide their practices.

PEDro allows you to identify useful publications in the physiotherapy field; however, it does not include the full text of these publications. In some cases, it includes links to subscription publications. These links have not been configured for Rutgers access.
