Therapy for broken wrist

I got my wrist of cast three weeks ago but wore a splint most of the time for the last 3 weeks due to a torn tendon for my thumb. Surgery scheduled for tendon transfer 3 weeks from now. I am now trying to get my wrist motion back before being re-immobolized again. Only suggestions from ortho was to use Chunky soup cans for curls. Any other ideas to get my wrist motion (bending) back to normal?

An ideal cushion to help preserve metatarsal phallangeal joint alignment (e.g. bunion deformity and post-operative toe drift).
