Urinary incontinence is an unpleasant, unwanted and distressing problem that is common among women in the UK. A recent study (Hunskarr et al, 2004) estimated that 10 million women in the UK suffer with urinary incontinence. Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is the most common form, affecting four million women. The International Continence Society defines SUI as 'the complaint of involuntary leakage [of urine] on effort or exertion, or on sneezing or coughing' (Abrams et al, 2002).
