Abstract: Let $ X$ and $ Y$ be real Banach spaces. A mapping $ f$ of an open subset $ R$ of $ X$ into $ Y$ is said to be $ (m,M)$-isometric if it is a local homeomorphism for which $ M \geqslant {D^ + }f(x)$ and $ m \leqslant {D^ - }f(x)$ for all $ x$ in $ R$, where $ {D^ + }f(x)$ and $ {D^ - }f(x)$ are, respectively, the upper and lower limits of $ \vert f(y) - f(x)\vert/\vert y - x\vert$ as $ y \to x$. We show that if $ R$ is a ball then all $ (m,M)$isometric mappings of $ R$ are injective provided that $ M/m < 1.114 \ldots $ and we also give some numerical improvements of similar results of F. John for the special case that $ X$ is a Hilbert space.
