Currently, the Geant4 is a standard tool for simulating experiments in high-energy physics. In this paper, we describe an improvement of the ionization model for hadrons, ions, and classical magnetic monopole, implemented in Geant4. Simulation results are discussed; their accuracy is analyzed depending on chosen parameters, and compared with experimental data.
