The Rehab Lab is a web-based tool designed specifically to meet the needs of health professionals working in the field of musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
The Rehab Lab allows you to create rehabilitation handouts of a high professional standard, customised to the individual needs of each client and personalised with your clinic logo.
Designed to be used in the clinical setting where therapists are often working to tight schedules, The Rehab Lab's user-friendly interface (which utilises intuitive search functions), makes it quick & easy to find the exercises, pre-set protocols or information sheets you require.
Then: customise, print or e-mail them directly to your clients.
The Rehab Lab prides itself on the high level of quality of the bold, clear, black-and-white illustrations which accompany each exercise. These illustrations add to the clean and simple layout of the rehabilitation programmes and result in easy-to-follow instructions which will print very clearly. We have made a point of keeping The Rehab Lab branding and copyright information to an absolute minimum on each programme. Add your company logo to your hand-outs and create a programme which is truly personalised to your clinic.
You can fully customise every exercise, rehabilitation programme and information sheet by editing part or all of the text (including titles, descriptions, sets & reps, exercise frequency, keywords and more).
This results in programmes customised to each individual client. These exercises, programmes and information sheets can then be saved to your own database to be easily retrieved in the future.
The Rehab Lab specialises in exercises, programmes and full-page information sheets for therapists in the field of musculoskeletal rehabilitation and is committed to supplying users with the best and most up-to-date exercises, rehabilitation programmes and information sheets.
The Rehab Lab features a form which allows users to submit their own exercises. These exercise suggestions are received by The Rehab Lab and added to the 'exercise update list'. The Rehab Lab will then endeavour to upload these exercises onto the exercise database as soon as possible and will notify you when this has been completed.
The exercise search function of The Rehab Lab is designed to make finding your exercises quick and easy. You can search by body region, by joint (i.e. shoulder, knee etc) or by exercise type (i.e. stretching, mobilising, neural etc). You also have the added option of searching by keywords (i.e. Swiss ball, infraspinatus, proprioception etc).
The Rehab Lab is 100% web-based. This is an important feature as it means that as long as you can find an Internet connection, you can access your account anywhere in the world at any time and on virtually any computer.
Increase the professional appearance of your clinic and impress your clients when you supply them with a professionally designed rehabilitation programme customised with your clinic logo and tailored to the individual needs of each client.
It has been shown that patients who receive written and illustrated exercise instructions have a significantly higher level of compliance compared to those patients who receive only verbal instructions. The Rehab Lab exercise descriptions are clear and concise. These instructions, combined with the bold, black-and-white illustrations, aid the patients' understanding and correct execution of their rehabilitation exercises. This increased understanding of their rehabilitation, coupled with the added option of attaching a 6-12 week exercise diary to their programme, will help boost your clients' exercise compliance resulting in a positive effect on their recovery.
The Rehab Lab is a user-friendly web-based tool which can be accessed anywhere at anytime. It has simple search functions, making finding the exercises and programmes you need easy and fast, saving you time. Your programmes can be printed, saved to your computer, e-mailed to your clients or attached to patient medical documentation as a PDF attachment.
Your Rehab Lab profile is password protected and the databases are regularly backed up. This means your custom databases of exercises, programmes and information sheets are secure and protected. The Rehab Lab also regularly updates the databases. This means that you are receiving the best, up-to-date, evidence based exercises and programmes as part of your subscription.
An added bonus of using The Rehab Lab is that while browsing the vast database of musculoskeletal exercises you may find many useful exercises of which you were previously unaware, and end up including them in your repertoire of therapeutic exercises.

Studying to be a health professional doesn't include art lessons, but in clinical practice many clinicians find themselves having to put pen to paper when it comes to prescribing rehabilitation exercises for their clients.
The Rehab Lab was created with the primary purpose of providing an on-line database of illustrated exercises which would be affordable for sole-practitioners and small to medium-sized health clinics worldwide. Since it's initial launch, The Rehab Lab is now being used all over the world by health professionals across a broad range of occupations from sole-practitioners to hospital departments.
The Rehab Lab online patient handout creation tool is the result of years of work by a group of dedicated New Zealand professionals.
The large exercise database was developed through the combined efforts of working physiotherapists, exercise specialists and I.T. professionals, and incorporating feedback from patients during an extended testing process in New Zealand clinics.
