Introducing Ambient Assistive Living (AAL) systems onto the market is a challenge. An interdisciplinary evaluation of system design should be integrated into the development process at an early stage. A toolkit to facilitate the evaluation process for developers as well as stakeholders and policy makers is presented. This toolkit includes a taxonomy that outlines the technological traits of personal health monitoring (PHM) and application fields of PHM within the AAL domain. The taxonomy can be used either within the toolkit, or as a stand-alone tool; its aim is to achieve a better mutual understanding of the concepts used in the dynamic field of AAL.
