Searching for programmes on The Rehab Lab is simple. To find a programme, 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 PROGRAMMES tab at the top of the screen (to the right of the the EXERCISES and INFO SHEETS tabs). This will display the PROGRAMME SEARCH SCREEN.

1. Select a programme 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 programmes in The Rehab Lab programmes database that match your search criteria.

To also search for programmes that you have added to your custom database, click the MY CUSTOM PROGRAMMES database (when selected, a green tick will appear within the check-box).

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