Bringing Smiles and Joy to Elliot Hospital Pediatric Patients with New Innovative Technology

An exciting, innovative technology has arrived in Elliot Hospital's pediatric department. The Vecta Budii Mobile-Sensory Station, or “Budii” is a mobile sensory station designed to help young patients and their families during hospital visits.  


Budii interacts with children in a variety of sensory experiences, including entertainment, development, and therapy. With features like: 

Vecta Budii Technology at Elliot HospitalInteractive Bubble Column- non-breakable mirrors and a continuous flow of calming bubbles make Budii either exciting or relaxing 

SNAP Projector- changes any surface into a play area that responds to the slightest movements. This projection technology offers learning, communication, and sensory exploration opportunities, from calm water scenes to exciting quizzes 

Fiber Optic Tails- with their bright display of colors, allow both visual and touch stimulation, ideal for fine motor development and soothing 

Budii is portable, making it flexible enough to use throughout the hospital. The technology is made possible thanks to the generosity of a grateful pediatric family through their private family foundation to the Mary and John Elliot Charitable Foundation and the New Hampshire Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities. 

Pediatric hospitalist Dr. Jessica McIntyre says, “The Budii system always delivers when it comes to bringing smiles and joy toVecta Budii Technology Elliot Hospital patients, families, and staff! This interactive technology is next-level for sensory and mobility support. Some of my favorite moments with the Budii system so far include creating new and fun ways for patients to meet their post-operative mobility goals and offering a completely unique distraction tool for children during difficult times. We are so grateful for this generous donation, which will positively impact the patient experience for years to come.” 

Budii is a terrific addition to pediatric care at Elliot Hospital, where innovation meets compassion to support young patients and their families. By offering a range of sensory experiences, promoting learning through fun, and fostering emotional well-being, Budii benefits everyone fortunate enough to interact with it. With Budii, Elliot Hospital sets a new standard of excellence in pediatric care, prioritizing treatment and the overall quality of patient experience.
