How to search for information sheets

Searching for information on The Rehab Lab is simple. To find an information sheet, first log in to The Rehab Lab and enter your username and password at the login screen. Once you have logged in, The Rehab Lab will load the exercise search screen.

Now, click the INFO SHEETS tab at the top of the screen (between the EXERCISES and PROGRAMMES tabs). This will display the INFO SHEET SEARCH SCREEN.

1. Select an information sheet database to search

The first line of search options you will see is the SELECT DATABASE check-boxes. THE REHAB LAB database is selected by default (note the check-box contains a green tick). This means that your search results will display only those information sheets in The Rehab Lab info sheet database that match your search criteria.

To also search for information sheets that you have added to your custom database of info sheets, click the MY CUSTOM INFO SHEETS database (when selected, a green tick will appear within the check-box).

If you only want to search information sheets that you have added to your custom info sheet database (and exclude The Rehab Lab info sheets), un-check THE REHAB LAB database (when deselected, the green tick will disappear from the check-box) and select MY CUSTOM INFO SHEETS database.

2. Enter title

Clicking the SEARCH button now will display all the information sheets in the selected database in the search results table. You can further refine your search by entering an information sheet title into the TITLE SEARCH text field.

note: If your search does not return enough info sheets, try restricting your title search to just one word.
