The 6D CARE Sliders are used by professional physiotherapists and osteopaths around the world. One of them is Sports physiotherapist Arjan Hermsen from Fysio Donders in the Netherlands.
Here are his thoughts and tips for using the 6D CARE Sliders from 6-Directions.
“I found 6-Directions through Social Media, and their sliding concept was something that I was missing in our daily practice! My co-workers and I are now using 6D CARE daily and with great enthusiasm. We are using our 6D CARE sliders with our regular patients as well as with athletes within running, handball, climbers, soccer and so on. The big advantage of 6D CARE for me is that it’s possible to train in multiple ways: for body control, strength and stability at the same time! 6D CARE is very versatile, easy to use and to take with you, which makes it an indispensable tool in my work as a sports physio!”
Physiotherapist and Sports physiotherapist, Master in Musculoskeletal Revalidatie Fysio Donders, Netherland
Arjan Hermsen has worked as a physiotherapist since 2012. With a Master in Sports Physiotherapy from HAN in Nijmegen, Netherland (Master Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation), he specialised in muscles rehabilitation, injury prevention tendons and joints, especially concerning injury occurring before, during or after exercise. His goal is to get his patients back to before the injury occurred as quickly as possible, and preferably by doing exercises that come closest to the patient’s sport.
My top 5 exercises with 6D CARE
Here are my top five 6D CARE exercises I used with my clients. There are of course many more possibilities, simply ensure to keep varying and challenging your clients and always keep in mind what your goal is for each exercise.
3 series of 30 seconds.
The aim is to do as many repetitions as possible within the time limit while keeping your back as neutral as possible.
Sliding side lunges
Great for eccentric work and adductor related pain. Put your weight on the static leg, and pull the opposite leg back towards your static leg.
Slide your leg from standing position behind your other leg and keep your weight on your front leg. Great for provoking and controlling the valgisation of the front leg.
This exercise is good for the core and in my opinion a great sport-specific exercise. You can do it on your knees or your toes depending on the stress you would like to put on your core muscles. Start in a push-up position and slide up with one arm, from there pull yourself back up to starting position and change arm.
Another great exercise for the core and arms. Do a normal push-up and then pull your knee up to your elbow. Keep your back neutral.
Of all the racquet sports badminton is the fastest, involving flying foot, lightning reflexes, terrific body balance, excellent reach, quick recovery time and immense stamina to dominate.
Elite badminton players are required to have a high level of skill. Though, to be a successful badminton player you also need to possess a variety of fitness capabilities such as; Aerobic fitness, reflex, flexibility, speed, balance, reaction time, agility, power and strength. All these fitness components can be developed with systemised assessment and training with 6-Directions. There are no rest intervals between prolonged rallies. This meaning a player needs to be incredibly fit to withstand the physical strain, otherwise he is liable to lose long rallies due to fatigue and injuries.
Due to the low weight of the racquets and the low inertia of the shuttlecock, badminton players gain an advantage from an increased level of strength endurance and speed strength. With the help of 6D SLIDING from 6-directions, a badminton player can develop both strength endurance and speed strength by using a variety of sliding exercises. 6D SLIDING can be used in combination with other strength-training tools such as Dumbbells, barbells and kettlebells, as well as rubber resistance power bands. Before any 6D SLIDING training programme, a proper warm-up with stretching is recommended as it will help expand the range of movements and increase the core muscle temperature. Post-workout stretches will improve the muscle recovery and prepare the player for the next session.

Badminton involves the use of several muscles groups depending on the movement performed by the players. Badminton requires a lot of lunging movements. With the various 6D SLIDING lunge exercises, you will engage several muscles from hamstring to gluteus maximus or butt muscles. The adductors and abductors, respectively, are also heavily used, especially when doing lunges in multiple directions and angles. It also includes loads of twisting and reaching movements which place a significant demand on your core muscles, waist and lower back. Smashing the shuttlecock uses the muscles of the chest, back and shoulder, and the degree of use solely depends on the shot being played.
– Casper Wiklund, Head Coach, Lyngby Badminton Club.
As strength training is one of the fitness components that need to be addressed in your programme, you should perform compound 6D SLIDING exercises with multi-angle and jointed range for making it skill and functionally specific. Perform exercises for both anterior and posterior compartment is recommended for better effectiveness and to reduce the risk of injuries due to overuse.

The 6-Directions concept can be tailormade to fit almost any kind of fitness studio. Read here how Gitte Salling, the founder and CEO of the danish fitness chain Energii, uses the 6-Directions sliders in a great way:
“The 6-Directions sliding concept is a perfect, fun, and safe tool for use at Energii’s Heat It Up® classes. In 2017 we had our own private label sliders made. Besides using the Energii sliders in our classes we are selling them as a part of our “Summer Kit” – a tote bag including a bath towel, two Energii sliders with 60 inspirational training videos utilizing the 6-Directions sliders.
We recommend our members to bring their “Summer Kit” and sliders on their holidays! The sliders are an easy way to stay fit, since they can be used everywhere. There are so many different exercises and you can easily get a full body workout only by using the sliders. Personally, I always bring my sliders when I am traveling.”

We just got these great pictures from Reishin Dojo Aikido, a great Aikido club in Odense, Denmark.
They love the 6D Sliders and we love how Sensei Merea and his Aikido-students use them to have fun and train at the same time – Both equally important when body and soul work together if you ask us. Aikido is often translated as “the way of unifying life energy” so the synergy with 6-Directions could almost not be better.
