The paper suggests and approves the adaptation index, which is calculated from the quantitative characteristics of regulatory-adaptive capabilities in the initial state and upon completion of the adaptation process. At values of this index, more than 60 – adaptation level is high, 50–60 is good, 30–50 is moderate, 20–30 is low, less than 20 is unsatisfactory.
The introduced objective indicator of adaptation is compared with the results of the adaptation evaluation for the variability of the heart rhythm. The comparison showed more effective evaluation of the level of adaptation at the proposed index. The adaptation index has been tested on more and less adapted students, with the impact of the learning process on them. It can be recommended for assessing a person’s adaptation.
