Welcome to PEDro
PEDro is the Physiotherapy Evidence Database, a free database of over 44,000 randomised trials, systematic reviews and clinical practice guidelines in physiotherapy. For each trial, review or guideline, PEDro provides the citation details, the abstract and a link to the full text, where possible. All trials on PEDro are independently assessed for quality. These quality ratings are used to quickly guide users to trials that are more likely to be valid and to contain sufficient information to guide clinical practice. PEDro is produced by the Institute for Musculoskeletal Health, School of Public Health at the University of Sydney and is hosted by Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA).
We will announce PEDro’s top 5 trials in 2014-2019 on 4 November 2019. To give you a sneak preview of what to expect, we have produced a short video for one of the best 15 physiotherapy trials published before 2014:
The PEDro Partnership is very excited to announce the launch of a new database. Called DiTA (for Diagnostic Test Accuracy), this database indexes articles evaluating the accuracy of diagnostic tests used by physiotherapists.

There are three search pages for the PEDro database. Two were designed for health professionals (simple search and advanced search). One was designed for consumers of physiotherapy.
