Since its inception, PEDro has been supported by several organisations and many individuals. Current supporters are listed below. The Centre for Evidence-Based Physiotherapy expresses its gratitude to these organisations and individuals but retains editorial independence from them.
PEDro needs your help! PEDro is produced on a not-for-profit basis in a registered charity using funding from industry partners. More funding is required to add new content and develop PEDro in 2016. Help us bridge this funding gap by making a donation today or contact us to discuss a partnership.
