Maestro project aims to develop a web platform providing seniors a large set of services and benefits to help them self-monitor well-being and health-related elements. This is done via devices such as connected watches, enabling to measure a walking distance, or to control the heartbeat. Maestro will focus on specific user groups with clearly identified service scenarios.
These devices, connected or not, should aid the seniors and also their helping tiers with a diversity of needs and, accordingly, in a diversity of services, contribute to maintaining seniors‘ well-being in the larger sense including self-help and co-management capabilities regarding well-being and autonomy issues.
In the context of self-management and prevention of disease, the goal of MAESTRO is to provide clarification, orientation and advisory services to a variety of users, and motivate fieldwork players and manufacturing and product distributing companies to participate in enriching the collective knowledge which it represents. This will be done through several building stages, first defining preliminary evaluation tools and building upon an initial inventory of devices, connected or not, and then testing them in a Pilot phase, to end up with fieldwork findings and tiers-robust reinforcement of both the Reference framework and the assessment methodology, all this translated into a platform, the MAESTRO portal.
Expected results and impact
The MAESTRO project aims at building-up, testing and disseminating in the broad European context, through an open platform, a dynamic Reference Framework( RF refers to a broad concept corresponding to the French term of « Référentiel ») concerning monitoring and self-monitoring devices, connected or not.
The output will be a documented usage framework, with models, maps, supportive indications, metrics and modes of use for a variety of stakeholders, among whom, as a pivotal figure, we find the elderly, as well as tools for any user to post questions and demands and share information with any other user.
