What is the Difference between Physiopedia and Physiopedia Plus[edit | edit source]

Physiopedia and Physiopedia Plus are two interconnected platforms that form the heart of our mission to enhance global health through rehabilitation knowledge.

Physiopedia is a collaborative effort from rehabilitation professionals around the globe to create a free and accessible rehabilitation knowledge resource. This platform offers an extensive collection of articles, images, and videos on all aspects of rehabilitation, and provides the opportunity for professionals to contribute their expertise and keep the content up-to-date. Users can freely access, read, and even contribute to the content on Physiopedia.

Physiopedia Plus, often referred to as Plus, is a subscription-based platform designed for more specialised professional development. As a member of Plus, you gain access to a wide range of online courses, downloadable resources, and an online portfolio to document your learning progress. Plus is also where you'll find forums for professional discussions, expert sessions, and many more features to support your professional growth and development.

In essence, while Physiopedia provides a comprehensive knowledge resource to the public, Physiopedia Plus ensures that Physiopedia remains free to access and is your hub for continuing education and professional development in the field of rehabilitation.
