MAESTRO (Sustainable Reference Framework evaluating equipment and services for seniors) is a web-based ICT multi modal platform providing a broad range of services and benefits in the domain of monitoring and self-monitoring systems for well-being and health-related information acquisition. Specifically, MAESTRO aims at realizing an innovative framework capable of facilitating the interaction and communication between producers and consumers at different levels, taking into account needs of end-users and features of products. This paper provides an overview of the key concepts and capabilities of MAESTRO focusing on the use of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) to make profiles of end-users and discover and rank products that meet their health-related needs. Also, this paper shows the results of a study aimed at evaluating the classification capabilities of MAESTRO and the integrated ICF-based taxonomy with respect to products and services developed within AAL Projects. The evaluation points out the health-related needs of end-users AAL projects focus the most as well as some limits and possible enhancements of the integrated ICF-based taxonomy.
