  • Scale of item score 0 = absent, 1 = present. The PEDro scale criteria are as follows: (1) random allocation, (2) concealed allocation, (3) similarity at baseline on key measures, (4) subject blinding, (5) therapist blinding, (6) assessor blinding, (7) >85% follow-up of at least 1 key outcome, (8) intention-to-treat analysis, (9) between-group statistical comparison for at least 1 key outcome, (10) point estimates and measures of variability provided for at least 1 key outcome.
