About the person:

Ryo Ueno, born 1990 in Japan, studied Physical Therapy and Biomechanics at the Department of Health Sciences, Hokkaido University and obtained BS, MS and PhD in Health Sciences. He also worked as a physical therapist for 4 years at an orthopedic hospital in Japan. Dr. Ueno then moved to the United States, where he completed his first postdoctoral training under the mentorship of Professor Timothy Hewett at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. He studied cadaveric simulation of knee ACL injury and musculoskeletal and finite element modeling to investigate knee ACL loading during sports activity.


Research interests:

Sports biomechanics

Musculoskeletal and finite element modeling to study mechanism of knee ACL injury in sports.



Teaching at the Institute for Sports Science in Innsbruck (ongoing):

  • UE Angewandte Biomechanik
  • UE Biomechanische Messmethoden
  • UE Rückschlagspiele: Schwerpunkt Tennis
