Introduction. Models of human thermoregulation are used for theoretical and experimental findings. Mathematical modeling of human physiological systems is one of the main methods for studying them in parallel with physiological researches in human body. For today, many mathematical models have been developed to predict human physiological responses, but most of them are related to special task.

The purpose of the paper is to develop multifunctional information system for modeling of human thermophysiological state that takes into account comprehensive assessment of impact of extreme conditions in humans. 

Results. The information system allows to research different tasks related to assessing the simultaneous impact on humans of various extreme conditions: cold and heat, wet and dry air, high winds, intense physical activity, immersion in cold water, waterproof protective clothing, long-wave and shortwave solar radiation, room temperature inhomogeneity and exposure to electromagnetic field.

Proposed information system enable us to make quantitative evaluations of impact of protective clothing on human thermophysiological state; human adaptation to intense physical activity at hot environment; overheating and dehydration in athletes during the marathon; safe time of hypothermia in cold water; human temperature comfort indoors during professional activity; electromagnetic radiation in the radio frequency ranges. 

Conclusions. The information system provides preliminary recommendations to physiological reserves of human, risks of deterioration of functional state (overheating, dehydration or hypothermia), safe stay time in extreme environment, temperature comfort in room during professional activities; effects of general, regional and local electromagnetic hyperthermia in humans of radio frequency ranges.

Keywords: model of human thermoregulation, information technology, physical activity, environmental conditions, protective clothing, temperature comfort, electromagnetic radiation.
