    Electrical Capacitive Cancer Treatment is a cancer treatment device  that inducing static electric field to human body by capacitive electrode in order to distract  the cancer’s cell growth. Based on principle of capacitance, human body is assumed as dielectric material. The research for measuring the distribution of electric field that produced by ECCT can be done by simulation using Finite Element Method that applied in COMSOL Multiphysics  software  and by using sensor experimentally. The material of sensor can  affects  the distribution value of electric field. In this research, 2D model of ECCT vest will be generated to evaluate the effect of sensor using. Variation of voltage, electrode configuration, and cross-section data area will be applied  as variation of parameters. The result can be used for calculate the correction factor of sensor using.
