To make a clear exercise intensity as well as the features of the blind basketball, we measured the actual heart rate of the people with visual impairment during the blind basketball game. The heart rate of five people who are blind was measured by heartbeat meter. We adjusted a mock match in 10 minutes, the teams were set up by gender, and the performers were two on two. We measured the heart rates in three different situations, measuring in a whole game, only during the play, and only during the break, and analyzed those heart rate values in minimum, maximum, and mean to make a clear exercise intensity. The minimum value was 130.1 BPM, and the maximum value was 186.8 BPM, from the mean value of heart rating during the whole game. The minimum value was 148.8 BPM, the maximum value was 186.8 BPM, from the mean value of heart rating during only for the play. The mean value of heart rating of five participants during only the play was range between 150 to 180 BPM. This value is similar to that recorded from people with non-visual impairment during a typical basketball game playing. It means that the average heart rating of blind basketball player is much higher than the floor volleyball players which in range of 144.1 to 168.6 BPM, and the blind tennis players, between 145.8 to 153.8 BPM. Cleared featrues are: (1) the heart rate gently rose up, when the participant continued the defence, (2) the heart rate rapidly rose up, when the participant failed by dribble to defence, (3) the heart rate shown almost flat or decrease, unless the participant dribbled as top speed, and (4) the heart rate often rose rapidly, when the participant has dash, cut the pass, and pounce a loose ball.
