I had the same problem many years ago just after I was injured. My OT came up with a solution. For some reason I remember dison or dyson but didn't find that on the internet. I pressed a rubbery/sticky pad between my hands and the teds. There was enough friction that I could work the teds up my legs without having to grab them.. This worked well after the teds had been gotten past my heel to the legs. I think something like a rubbery pad used to open jars would work similarly.
Sometimes home health stores that sell custom compression hose have rubber gloves that are used to help slide on that type of hosiery. They look like basic yellow rubber gloves, but they have little bumps on the fingers and palm which grips the stockings nicely. Sigvaris is the brand I'm thinking of, I'm sure there's others too.
When my brother was in Dodd Hall they used a kroger plactic bag, or baby powder. It worked really well.
