  • Patent number: 11874713
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a first body including a first part and a second part hinged to each other, a second body, and a hinge structure hinged between an edge of the second body and the second part. The first part has a recess. When the second body is unfolded relative to the first body from a folded state to a first unfolded state, the hinge structure pushes against the first part to rotate the first part relative to the second part. When the second body is continuously unfolded relative to the first body from the first unfolded state to a second unfolded state, the edge of the second body pushes against the first part, so that the first part continues to rotate relative to the second part. When the second body is in the folded state, the hinge structure is at least partially accommodated in the recess.

  • Patent number: 11832967
    Abstract: A wearable physiological signal detecting device includes a device main body and a telescopic structure. The device main body has a strap which surrounds to form a wearable space. The telescopic structure is disposed in the strap and has first surfaces and second surfaces. Each of the first surfaces faces the corresponding second surface. Each of the first surfaces and the corresponding second surface continuously move close and contact each other to assume a first state. The strap can be forced so that each of the first surfaces and the corresponding second surface move away from each other and have an angle to assume a second state. The size of the wearable space when the first surface and the corresponding second surface assume the second state is greater than the size of the wearable space when the first surface and the corresponding second surface assume the first state.
