|With deep regret we announce the death of Prof. M. Hirai who
passed away on Jan 13, 2013 .
Prof Hirai was a great man, the father of compression in Japan.
We will never forget him.
I was so sorry to see the announcement of the passing of
Professor Hirai. He was so brave to come last year with his wife, but that
showed his commitment to what he loved doing. I admired his spirit of
determination. His death is a loss to the community and developments but I
imagine that there were younger researchers and clinicians in Japan that
will follow in his footsteps.
