HEALTH APP REVIEW TOOL: Evaluating Technology for Exceptional Users

Julie M. Faieta, PhD, MOT, OTR/L

Assistant Professor, University of Pittsburgh


Dr. Faieta is a rehabilitation science researcher and a licensed clinical occupational therapist. At present, her primary area of research is in the development and evaluation of assistive and pervasive technology-based interventions to address health span and quality of life in neurodegenerative and caregiver populations. With a specific interest in Alzheimer’s disease and technology mediated disease management, she is working to develop interventions that can be effectively implemented with those at risk of disease development, and across each stage of the disease progression. During her doctoral studies she completed a minor in neuroscience to facilitate enhanced understanding of the underlying neural mechanisms and disease pathologies associated with neurodegenerative conditions in order to support her research goals. She has been able to develop a diverse network of collaborators that represent both clinical and engineering field expertise. In addition to her academic pursuits, she has also maintained active involvement in the American Congress of Rehabilitative Medicine’s Neurodegenerative Networking Group as the chair of the Alzheimer’s Disease Task Force and as the Social Media Officer.  In addition, she currently sits on the board for the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America and serves as the Student Scientific Paper Competition chair.
