This paper reports on the simplified mathematical model to predict the thermal physiological responses of a sleeping person in steady-state and uniform conditions. By modifying Gagge's two-node model and coupled with a mathematical model of predicting the total insulation value of a bedding system, a mathematical model for predict the thermal physiological responses of a sleeping person in steady-state and uniform conditions was firstly developed. This is followed by comparing the predicted values using the mathematical model with the previous experimental data.
