Forearm exercises after hand injury?

Question: Forearm exercises after hand injury?

About 6 weeks ago, my friend seriously injured two fingers on his right hand. The hand is now immobilized and will be for about the next year or so. He has no use of his pointer and middle finger, and because of the nature of the injury, very limited use of his other fingers. His forearm has started to noticeably atrophy. Are there any exercises he can do to strengthen his forearm that don't require the use of his hand?
