To avoid heart failures at work, the Compact Stress Meter should become one's best companion. As its name suggests, this device conveniently measures the level of stress at work. A team of researchers from the Tokyo Metropolitan University have surely found a clever way to lower the levels of anxiety and tension in the workplace.

The way this device works is by controlling the blood flow in the system and measuring it against a four-level scale. Thanks to sensors located on a computer mouse, the worker only needs to place a fingertip on it for 10 seconds to have real-time results.

The Compact Stress Meter will certainly help to make work a better, more relaxed place -- in fact, I'm sure it will enable workers to find more reasons for coffee breaks and longer vacation times.
