Aim: assessment of the adaptive potential of students ? course of a technical university.

Material and methods: literature review, methods for assessing adaptive potential and biological age, rapid assessment of the level of physical health; methods of mathematical statistics; stating experiment with the participation of students of the 1 course (n = 56).

Results. A sufficiently high accuracy of recognition of the state of the body provides a method for determining the adaptive potential. In the course of the ascertaining experiment, it was established that 44.64% of students were assigned to the first group - satisfactory adaptation, and 55.36% - the tension of adaptation mechanisms to the second group. Persons with unsatisfactory adaptation or with its failure were not identified. In order to study the changes in the functional state depending on the established adaptive potential, a comparative analysis of the average statistical values ??of the indices of rapid assessment of physical health and biological age indices, which characterize the biological survival function, as one of the main manifestations of human health, was carried out. Statistically significant differences in some indicators were revealed, namely: adaptive potential (p<0.001); biological age (p<0.1); index “double product” (p<0.001); Ruthier Index (p<0.001); level of physical health (p<0.001).

Conclusions. As a result of these studies, the fact was revealed that an increase in the work of the adaptive mechanisms of the body is accompanied by significant changes, which are reflected in: acceleration of the aging process of the body; the tension of the cardiovascular system at rest and when performing standard physical activity; lowering the level of bioenergy resources of the body.
