The dynamics of changes in the parameters of the surface and core body temperature under the systematic impact of ultra-low temperature is described in this article. As a source of ultra-low temperature was used «Cryo Therapy Chamber» Zimmer Medizin Systeme firm Zimmer Electromedizin (Ger­many) (-110°C). Surface and internal body temperature was measured by infrared thermometer immediately before visit­ing cryochamber and immediately after exiting. In the study conducted 47,464 measurements of body temperature. It was established that the internal temperature of the human body under the influence of ultra-low temperatures in the proposed mode of exposure remains constant, and the surface tempera­ture of the body reduces by an average of 11,57°C. The time frame stabilization of adaptive processes of thermoregulation under the systematic impact of ultra-low temperature was defined in the study.

Keywords: ultra-low temperature, the surface temperature ofthe body, internal body temperature, thermoregulation, totaltime of cryotherapy.
