This article introduces the Integrated Quality assurance framework implemented in the Maestro project. This framework aims to support both seniors and their carers to select health related solutions to improve personal quality of life and well-being by using an ICT platform. Maestro enables seniors to view a selection of products that are recommended according to their needs and identified by applying profiling and assessment methodologies. It focuses on several functionalities offered by the Maestro platform, particularly a repository of products organized according to a taxonomy based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) developed during the project. Through a specific example of an assistive solution, it describes profiling functions for both products and end-users, and an assessment function provided by qualified users. The paper also reports on feedback from users who tested the platform, and provides insight on the market potentiality of the platform derived by different stakeholders.
