PEDro is the Physiotherapy Evidence Database. PEDro is a free database of over 27,000 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.

There are four search pages for the PEDro database. Two were designed for health professionals (simple search and advanced search). One was designed to search PEDro in combination with OTseeker, PsycBITE and speechBITE (Allied Health Evidence). One was designed for consumers of physiotherapy and can be accessed via the Physiotherapy Choices web-site.
